Important RCPS Updates

"The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives."

~Robert M. Hutchins

Great Things Going On!

  • I don't know how I can thank all of you enough for your open conversation on Wednesday morning. I know that the idea of change can be scary and challenging; but I want all of you to remember that I am so proud of each of you. All of you have taken at least one risk this year and tried something new in an effort to benefit your students. We will continue to take these risks and make decisions based on our data and what we know to be developmentally and educationally powerful for our students.
  • Thank you so much for the positive conversation at the Team Meetings this week. I look forward to working with our End of the Year teams to begin planning for the coming year.
  • Students have shown great growth on their STAR assessments from 2nd to 3rd nine weeks. To all of you who opted to test your students in March, I will be meeting with you to discuss your students' growth and review the different report.
